Texas Tech Research Featured in Newsweek Article

Texas Tech landed itself in Newsweek's feature story this week. TTU Associate Professor of Human Development Sybil Hart says, "The recognition is so appreciated and it really is such an honor."  Hart, is mentioned in the first paragraph of Newsweek's feature story this week... bringing Tech national recognition.  Hart says "I feel very privelaged."  Dr. Bill Marcy, Senior V.P. for Academic Affairs adds, "It's, in my mind, an indication of the quality of our faculty and the research programs and orientation toward helping understand human behavior."

Hart interviewed with Newsweek back in June for a piece on infant development. The magazine wanted to know about Dr. Hart's research on infants and jealousy.  Her studies show jealousy develops much sooner in babies than previously thought. Hart says, "This goes against current thinking and theory, so it's controversial and it's new and it's of interest to people.  It obviously relates to a pressing problem of sibling rivalry and broader issues in relationships." 

Hart says Newsweek did a wonderful job describing her research which studies how babies react when their mom's pay attention to another baby and ignore them. The purpose: to better understand how humans react when they lose the attention of a loved one.  Hart explains, "Ultimately that's why we do it, so people will know your child is not pathological, you're not a bad mother, your child is jealous when you bring home a new baby."
